Derbyshire schoolchildren tackle speeding drivers

Children in a Derbyshire village have been working with police to stop drivers speeding past their school.

On Tuesday, pupils from Stonebroom Junior School, with police officers and speed guns, stopped 15 motorists suspected of driving too fast.

Drivers were spoken to about the dangers of speeding so close to a school and how they would feel if they hit a child.

One car was also seized when it was found to be uninsured.

Pc Andrew Cropper, from Derbyshire Police, said: "Children and young people, whose road sense is still developing, are at particular risk from speeding cars.

"We hope to teach those selfish drivers who speed in school zones a very serious lesson."
